When it comes to age we often think in numbers, but the truth is our bodies don’t. While we may say we’re forty, our bodies could already be feeling the effects of our lack of exercise and technically be aged 50 in some cases.
So what should you do?
The good news is that although consistently treating your body badly with fatty foods and lack of exercise, it is possible to improve it and make a difference to the age your body has become.
The Cheapest Life Insurance therefore, takes a little look at how you can decrease those years with some top and easy tips!
Give up smoking
This will really help you reduce your body age. Smoking does age you physically but it obviously has a seriously detrimental impact on your internal health.
Eat your five a day!
This is again a really obvious one, but eating your five portions of fruit and veg everyday will top up your body’s vitamins and improve your skin – not to mention help you improve your bodies’ natural defences.
So many people are overweight these days and it’s an increasing problem here in the UK. So lose a bit of weight.

There are so many things you can do to keep yourself healthier so our list is just the tip of the iceberg. One things for sure though if your body is older than your actual years it’s probably time to start pushing back the years!
